About

My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

January Favourites

Sunday, 8 February 2015

As part of my blogging goals, I'm going to try and remember to do a monthly favourites!

For the month of January I have been loving:


Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation I have been loving this foundation for the entire month, and have used it every day, to set my concealer and I love that it doesn't overshadow my freckles, check out a post I did on this powder here

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette This month I have been using this palette almost exclusively, the taupes of the collection work perfectly with my skin tone, but it's also great for quick looks, Urban Decay is my favourite company for palettes just because of this one. 

Starlooks Bare Lip liner and MAC Viva Glam V  I have been wearing this a lot in January as well, the effect is very Kylie Jenner. 

Amie Moisturizer I had a bad month for my skin, I used a product or two that left the skin around my eyes and down my t-zone very dry, almost burnt, and this moisturizer saved it. I stopped using the bad products and did nothing to my skin except use this moisturizer morning and night for days and it healed my skin right up, I love that it is so gentle and so moisturizing. 

Nume 5 in 1 curling wand set I got this for christmas, and it has 5 different sizes and styles of curling barrels, I have used this frequently during the month, mostly the 32mm and the 25mm barrels. I plan on doing a whole post on this set in the coming months. 



Netflix Show: Archer I was recommended this show by a friend at the end of the month and I love it. It is animated and the content is more adult, but the show is hilarious (very dry humour). 

What have you been loving this month?
